The Colour Of A Face

Reading Time: < 1 minute The colour of a face, The darkness of a place, Staring from behind, I am the one you find, I crash to the ground, and pray, You take my breath away, It’s me today, him tomorrow, You do not stop and have no sorrow, Let the men and women march, Down the avenue, under the […]

Eagle Of The Sky

eagle

Reading Time: < 1 minute The eagle of the sky, Asks the question why, To death, from birth, We don’t love the earth. Lost in the realm of fortitude, We miss the magnitude Of the Earth’s illness, Of our own madness. Run, rabbit, run, Not from the eagle, but from the sun. Global warming, The Heavens’ warning, It is not […]

The Departed

Reading Time: < 1 minute Forever in my heart and mind, You wander across the crystal lake, Happiness, you will find, Peace, you will make. I might be without you, You might have lost me, But time will see us through, And one day we will see, As everlasting entanglements of love, Continue to haunt us from above, Two souls […]

Nine Plus One Is Ten

nine

Reading Time: < 1 minute I’m writing along, Singing this song, All night long. Number two, Tie up your shoe, Laces, We’re going places, With a puppet’s string, Just the thing. Three, four, Close the door, The puppet might escape, Sellotape, His box, And don’t forget your socks. Five, six, A box of tricks, At sixes and sevens, Up in […]

The Chrysalis

chrysalis

Reading Time: < 1 minute Looking into the future, I am frightened of the past, A fragile chrysalis, a butterfly that will not last, And yet you are stronger than the strongest girl, More beautiful than the largest pearl,  Upon my shoulder, you search my soul, You fill me with fear I cannot control, And as you travel across the […]

Under The Bridge

bridge

Reading Time: < 1 minute Under the bridge I lie, Sounds of footsteps on cobblestones, City of Lights where love went by, A broken soul, fractured bones. I boarded the moonlit train, You said nothing I did not hear, The carriage moved, I felt the pain, Your absence awoke my fear. I jumped onto the golden rail, Searched for you […]

Great Sphinx Of Giza

sphinx

Reading Time: < 1 minute Sandstone eyes shine into the distance, A sphinx bemuses the crystal sky, And as I share with him, this instance, I wonder what he does, and why. Far on the horizon, he casts a shadow, Only he knows what futures hold, Transfixed through time’s eternal bow, He sees the sun unfold. Long, long ago, He […]

Corona’s Cloud

cloud

Reading Time: < 1 minute As she lingers in our streets below, “R” less than “ONE,” more than “ZERO,” I hear her cry out loud, “I remain your darkest cloud.” She did not ask to find Man, But was disturbed in Wuhan. The delicate balance of nature, Ripped to threaten our future. “Do what?” I hear you ask, Your lips […]

Reflections (3) The Nightingale

Reading Time: < 1 minute Looking through the veiled window, Which way will the nightingale go? Will it be up, will it be down? Do not fret, do not drown. Rest on the oak tree’s branch, and sing Your beautiful song, for the delicate spring, And whilst we  pant and fight, Desperately trying to save our plight, I sit and listen, […]

Reflections (2) – Lockdown

lockdown

Reading Time: < 1 minute LOCKDOWN   A particle so small, shaped like a crown. A disease threatening to bring us down. And yet, in the distance, I find hope, a brilliance. I will march on into the daylight, I will endure and fight. Togetherness from you, is what I need, And on your love and compassion, I feed. The […]
